This listing is for one wine cork letter – For multiple letters, words, or special orders, please send me a message so I can save you money and get you a custom order.
These letters are made with a blend of cork pieces mounted on a wooden backing. Wine corks are from a combination of my own personal collection as well as corks bought from charities and come from all over the US and also from international vineyards. The current collection of corks I'm working through are from Sports 4 All Foundation, a Nashville based non-profit that provides adaptive exercise, sports, and nutrition education classes for individuals with disabilities, so your purchase also helps support this important cause! All cork pieces are natural cork and are cut and arranged by hand and to order and wood backing is not visible through the cork. After placement of all of the corks, the edges are cleaned and polished smooth to follow the curves and edges of the letter. Each letter can be finished with alligator clips on the back for addition into a wreath – like the burlap wreath shown – or onto other clip-able surfaces, with a picture mount for wall hanging, or with a picture-frame like stand for end table or shelf display. The 26 English characters are 10.5" tall and the ampersand (&) symbol is also 10.5" tall.
These letters are weather-proof, but to a point – the glue will not withstand temperatures north of 130 degrees Fahrenheit, so if you're considering using these for a wreath or other site outside, please keep this in mind. I have managed to ruin my own art on my own front door numerous times in the past for a variety of reasons and have therefore learned a lot. Specifically, the space between my front door and glass door apparently gets warmer than this in the heat of the summer… lesson learned. If you're concerned about potentially having a problem or just want to make sure your purchase stays in peak condition while you display it, please message me and we can discuss your particular situation to see if this product is right for you.
Note: Etsy wouldn't allow me to type the 'and' symbol in the list of options, but it is made as a single character. If you would like to know what the shape of a letter would look like without wine corks already added, please send me a message and I'll send you a picture of the wooden letter. For orders with multiple letters, please allow 1-2 weeks for production. If you have a specific time frame you need to meet, please send me a message and we can see what we can do for you!
As with all of my items, this one is absolutely customizable to a 'T'! (Lol, pun.) The wood backing in the basic letter is painted to match the cork, but naturally, this can be changed to any color you can imagine! I can also adjust or design a new way to adhere or hang your letters to fit your needs! If you can dream it, I can make it! Just give me an idea about what you're imagining!
Thanks for shopping!
